Regulatory Comments: Academy Solicits Expertise from Members, DPGs

Members have the opportunity to comment on several new regulations and agency initiatives by working within their dietetic practice groups. Regulations and initiatives on which the Academy anticipates comment are regularly updated.

Open comments include Screening and Diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus, the Food Safety Education Campaign Post-Wave Tracking Survey; Evidence-Based Community Approaches to Chronic Disease Prevention; Food Security and Meeting Food Needs in U.S. Households; USDA National School Lunch Program Certification of Compliance Rule; SNAP Fraud Prevention; and Ryan White Reauthorization.

The Academy regularly solicits and incorporates evidence-based opinions of DPGs when drafting comments to federal agency notices, agency initiatives and proposed regulations, including:

  • Forwarding to DPG chairs or public policy designates notices of all regulatory initiatives upon which the Academy is considering commenting, utilizing templates and encouraging chairs to forward to public policy representatives, members with expertise on the attached issues or the broader DPG membership.
  • Asking DPGs whether they recommend the Academy comment on the proposed regulation/notice.
  • Soliciting substantive answers to specific questions or issues raised by an agency’s proposed regulation.
  • Asking DPG leaders to work within each DPG as appropriate to decide whether to submit substantive comments/recommendations to the Academy for incorporation in the Academy’s regulatory response.
  • Collecting comments from DPG members and soliciting them on behalf of the DPG to the Academy under the applicable timeframe. We are not seeking individual comments from members, rather a set of comments from the DPG.

The Academy reminds members it is critical for every respondent to provide evidence-based data with citations to support their positions, to make it possible to utilize their expertise.
